Omeka for Teaching and Research

April 3, 11:00-12:30, Keating 318
Sign up for the workshop will begin on 
March 1, at the Fordham Graduate Student Digital Humanities website
The number of participants is limited to 15. 

Part 1 of the Fordham Graduate Student Digital Humanities group's Teaching and Research with Technology Series will be a workshop on Omeka, led by Alex Gil, the Digital Scholarship Coordinator at Columbia University. In this workshop you will learn how create and organize a digital archive using Omeka, an open-source tool designed to manage and display collections of cultural objects in digital formats (images, video, documents, sound, etc.).  As you explore this user-friendly but powerful tool, you will learn about its functions and its design. We will use the version of the software provided on omeka.net.  For examples of humanities research projects that use Omeka, look at the Showcase.  The workshop does not require you to be a digital expert. Simple familiarity with common tools like Microsoft Word, Google or WordPress should suffice. Fordham University’s Center for Teaching Excellence and the Fordham University Graduate Student Association have provided funds to make this workshop possible.
